Sigma announced that they were jumping into the world of cinema in a big way at the beginning of September. Last month, they announced pricing and availability for the first two cine lenses in the range to be released. These are the 18-35mm T2.0 and 50-150mm T2.0, both due to start shipping in just under two weeks.
To show off their capabilities, Sigma have produced the 15 minute short film “Blur”. Shot entirely with the pair of Super 35mm (APS-C) zoom lenses, on the Arri Amira, it’s a touching story. A boy’s slightly weird father, seen by his friends as the “cool dad”, is obsessed with his camera. His photographs aren’t very good, but he keeps shooting.
